PURE GOLD !! What a great interview and Very insightful. Intestinal permeability is turning out to be such a major player with a multitude of disease processes. I remember a time, not that long ago, when it was not even considered an entity.
Thanks much !!
p.s. love the term “bingery”. Exactly how it affects me.
